Schug Pinot Noir Carneros

Wine Details


Pinot Noir



Wine Description

The cool growing season of the Sonoma Coast, which includes the western portion of Carneros, allows Pinot Noir to mature slowly while retaining its natural acidity, yielding a wine with ripe flavors and silky texture. By aging it primarily in large oak casks and "neutral" older barrels, we can emphasize the varietal character of the fruit while minimizing the extraction of new oak flavors or tannins. It has flavors reminiscent of cherries, strawberries and spice, with a lively finish that is an ideal accompaniment to grilled fish and fowl or barbecued meats.
